First there was Stephen Smith. After three consecutive innings after returning from the Newlands scandal ban at Edgbaston and Lord & # 39; s, he distracted British bowlers. They planned in every way, submitted too many batches, but with no success. It's been over two centuries and made a third hand gesture as the ball descended the slope as Jofra Archer pitched up and down.
It is Marnus Labuschagne to see, wait, expect and dream a little. None of the Australian squad was more closely related to Smith's greedy pursuit of knowledge, skills, and methods of hitting each other so that team members could wake up in the middle of the night when bats knocked on hotel room carpets. Shooting scene of the next day. Labou Chauinho was shocked with the 28,000 spectators when the archer came home to Smith and ran to the vantage point to see if he was okay.
He was hit but not embarrassed, but after being distracted for a while, Smith passed the concussion test and was distracted for a while. He didn't get along well the next morning, and when he sent a reserve line to the nursery before the last day's game, Labuschagne was told by captain Tim Paine. He was a substitute for Smith. Eliminating one obstacle and England immediately found another. Labuschagne also hit Archer but only on the helmet grille. His result was a half-century draw.
More had to come to Headingley twice in Smith's customs office four times. Three Labuschagnes exceeded 50 and actually seemed to have been enough to secure an Australian victory at Leeds. If he was the beneficiary of several downside opportunities in two innings of 80 times, the first contribution of 74 days out of 179, when conditions were the hardest, was more than just a reward for this luck. Eventually, a problem of centimeters arose beyond the hands of Labuschagne, brutally one of Ben Stokes's six matches.
Looking at everything, Smith suffered as a result of his gratitude for the particular situation. Every day at Leeds Test, he met his face bowler under team doctor Richard Saw's researched eyes and gradually increased his level of activity before joining a match against Derbyshire. Overall, he suffered from pulmonary phobia so that his head felt like it was inside the MRI machine, but he tried to get used to adding a protective stem guard to the back of the helmet. The net for the dungeon was unconsciously considered a more useful preparation than batting for the Derbyshire spin.
In Derby, Smith and Labuschagne played together and didn't ride together but didn't have to wait long. On behalf of choice and 3 and 4, Usman Khawaja, they trained the Smithside armed ball together before the match at Labuschagne, where he enjoyed a rare sensation that Steve Waugh cleans the mud from his spikes. "A little unrealistic, I had Steve Smith throw me a weapon for 30 minutes," he said. "I like to talk to him and learn about games. Obviously a great experience and a great player. I'm doing as much as possible."
I couldn't find anything in Manchester about the shuffling of Australia's best order to ensure a better start. Once again, the openers were separated before they split into double numbers, and David Warner left a border when he tried to leave Stuart Broad for the second time alone. Nevertheless, Marcus Harris seemed a bit more relaxed, but figured out pretty quickly by Broad, he clearly targeted the stump's line and got a lbw verdict before the score reached 30.

Labuschagne once again seemed comfortable from the moment he arrived and scored from drifting wide and wide or too straight on the stump and pad, leaving the length ball off the stump. He talked about making a lot of adjustments within a lot of plans for every bowler under all conditions before playing a series of games, and avoided the long traditional Australian line of "playing my game of nature" for something more scientific.
Of course, Smith has pioneered this method among modern Australian batters, making them at least one step ahead of the world bowlers in the last six years. They were a great idea for ideas, coordination and coordination made in the context of a moving ball and an English pitch. They are right handed and have one built-in advantage because they didn't give you the opportunity to bend the ball at the turnstile in the way Warner, Harris, Kawaya had to fight, but the rest is technology. And prophesied.
Perhaps the most obvious counter suggested by Smith was to choose how to play Archer's guards, take a dodging action off the ball, and eliminate the chance of hitting the delivery following him. Shake it away from it. If the Old Trafford arena is not yet fast and Archer is not at his best, the guards haven't caused any trouble for Smith at all, and Joe Root and the company have come to think more. On the other hand, Labuschagne was forced to admire.
"What he does very well [is problem solving]"I think I can see it as a spectator at the other end," he said. "I think about how other men change when they appear, other guards, how he types, and other transfers." To make him the best in the world. He's always going one step ahead, it's very difficult to get along because he doesn't wait, doesn't react, he's active, he always thinks ahead.
"We've been trying to think about what the bowlers are trying to do, what he's trying to do, and think about similar things and where they're going to take us. We're always trying to learn. It doesn't matter if you try to learn other things and always make sure you are open to learning others.
"It was fun and good time. I had never burned with him, so learning how he was going and learning there was a good experience."
Late, the strong wind swept through the shower so intense that the referee actually stopped the smoke. The same wind disappeared so fast that Craig Overton stopped at the turnstile twice, so I finished bowling without rain or interruption. So stop-start seemed to ruin Batman's concentration, but Labuschagne's wells are clearly deep. When the overturn finally made the bowl, he neatly lowered the result through the third person to the boundary and repeatedly stepped on how the ball slipped off the surface at the end of the over.
It was not a Labuschagne but a mannerism that was immediately used by the other. In the broken nature of this wet and windy day, Labuschagne and Smith were not only the leading runmakers of this series, but also the ideal men of Australia, where two cricketers were never happy than they were cocoons in batting cricket. Although Labuschagne allowed his guard at the last minute overhead, but allowed the overturn to access the top of the stump, Australia had a platform for Justin Langer, more than 300 scoring coaches this week.
After Edgbaston, a contract was signed between Labuschagne and Smith-for a young man to clean Smith's bag at the end of each test in return for two captains' bats-if this century is a cataclysm of victory, a revision is needed May need Australia. Some of Australia's top six will probably want to clean Smith and Labuschagne's bags based on running.
